As expected, the Diamondbacks announced that Edwin Jackson’s next start will be pushed back two days after he threw 149 pitches in Friday’s no-hitter against the Rays.
Jackson has said that his arm feels fine following the massive workload, but instead of pitching tomorrow against the Cardinals he’ll start Friday versus the Dodgers in Arizona. Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports that Barry Enright will be called up from Double-A to face the Cardinals in Jackson’s place.
Enright was the Diamondbacks’ second-round pick in 2007 and has pitched well with a 2.88 ERA and 83/15 K/BB ratio in 93.2 innings at Double-A this season, but he’s already 24 years old and projects as a back-of-the-rotation starter or long reliever who figures to have trouble keeping the ball in the ballpark.
